Software is at the mercy of its inputs though.

People seem to like XKCD.

I sat with someone from the Whitaker on the bus and I asked him what the word on the street was. He thought they were folding because the shop on Blair Street is gone and he knew someone who worked there four months and predicts a warranty work will bring them down. (Quit? Fired? In corporate speak that is 'not a good fit')

He didn't know about the new assembly plant that's expanding across 2nd Street. He thought the Achilles heel is the motors, but Arcimoto is moving to a new motors supplier.

A single data point but I found it interesting.
